Wow it's been a big year for us at Olivine and Ruby and as the last fews days of the year have come to an end, I've been reflecting on what's happened over the past 12 months.
We secured our first studio space to work at in February; a huge milestone. Finally a space to spread my wings. The studio space has been absolutely amazing and I have loved every second making it our own. It's been so wonderful having a premises!
During spring, we launched new products. Winchester Reverie was a newbie which captured memories of studying in beautiful Winchester. It stands as a firm favourite of mine when spring and summer begin in the UK. We also had new gift sets join the gang, reed diffusers, another fragrance named Weekends in Paris and a new winter fragrance too called New Forest Winter. It's been a busy one on the product front. Hopefully more to come next year!
We ventured into new pastures by trying out crafters markets which was a lot of fun. It was fantastic meeting customers face to face and seeing them interact with the products. We also secured a spot in a retailer in London called Haven Wellness set in the heart of Crystal Palace. You can shop all our Classic candles there.
And lastly being featured in numerous press features was a bonus!
It's not often that I just stop a reflect (I must do more of it), but now I have, I am feeling a really deep sense of gratitude. Thank you for supporting me on my journey - I couldn't do it without all my lovely customers.
I hope you get an opportunity to sit and reflect about what's happened in your 2021 and I'm sending you lots of love and light for 2022.
See you in the new year,
